I am having an issue with an event calendar. When the event is a one day event and has only a start date (no end date), the event does not display and the next event in line repeats. Can anyone explain what I can change in the code to fix the issue.

EventLandingPage.ss

<% if UpcomingEvents(4) %>
         <h3><a href="events"><span>view all</span></a>Upcoming Events</h3>
         <% control UpcomingEvents(4) %>
            <div class="news-module">
               <% if EventURL %><a href="$EventURL" class="logo"><% end_if %>
                  <% if EventImage %>$EventImage<% end_if %>
               <% if EventURL %></a><% end_if %>
               <p>
                  <span class="date">
                  <% if EventEndDate %>
                  $EventStartDate.MonthAndDay -
                  <% else %>
                  $EventStartDate.Complete
                  <% end_if %>
                  <% if EventEndDate %>$EventEndDate.Complete<% end_if %>
                  </span><br/>
                  <% if EventURL %><a href="$EventURL"><% end_if %><strong>$EventName</strong><% if EventURL %></a><% end_if %>
                  <% if EventDescription %><br/>$EventDescription<% end_if %>
                  <% if EventCity %><br/>$EventCity<% end_if %>
               </p>
               <div class="clear"></div>
            </div>
         <% end_control %>
      <% else %>
         <p>There are currently no events scheduled.</p>
      <% end_if %>

EventPage.ss

<% if Events %>
      <h3>Upcoming Events</h3>
      <ul>
         <% control Events %>
         <li>
            <% if EventURL %><a href="$EventURL" target="_blank"><% end_if %><% if EventImage %>$EventImage.SetWidth(100)<% end_if %> <h4>$EventName</h4><% if EventURL %></a><% end_if %><br />
            $EventStartDate.Standard<% if EventEndDate %> - $EventEndDate.Standard<% end_if %> <br />
            <% if Location %>
            by <strong>$Location</strong><br />
            <% end_if %>
            <% if City %>
            $City
            <% end_if %>
            <% if EventDescription %>
            $EventDescription
            <% end_if %>
         </li>
         <% end_control %>
      </ul>
      <% end_if %>
